Bhubaneswar police will soon procure devices to collect penalty for traffic rule violation through debit and credit cards.

“We will shortly introduce e-challan system in our traffic system. The police headquarters recently floated tender to procure the devices,” commissioner of police Y B Khurania told TOI.

Police said they often come across traffic offenders, who do not carry cash. “At times, we let them go. Once the e-challan system is introduced, we will accept credit cards and debit cards from the offenders,” said a traffic police officer.
